Head of Strategic Planning and Partnerships
“To accelerate technology adoption in the maritime industry, no company can rely on their product offering alone. I believe in working with ecosystem players, maritime accelerators and start-ups to develop long-term solutions as a collective.”
Tarun Mehrotra trained as a marine engineer in India, starting his career in South Korean shipyards with DNV as a Surveyor for new construction of ships. He soon progressed to a project manager role, overseeing offshore ship builds.
Later, he moved on to commercial roles with Jardine Matheson, DNV and Lloyd’s Register in Singapore and Dubai where he worked in regional business development function. Throughout his career, Tarun has been involved in the adoption of novel maritime technologies (FSRUs, LNG bunkering and 3D printing FLNGs ) and scaling advisory and assurance services to meet the evolving needs. His commercial mindset and a keen drive for collaboration has led him to take several solutions to market.
Tarun joins RightShip after his most recent role in venture-building firm Rainmaking, located in Singapore, where he was responsible for scaling the open innovation platform and working with global start-ups to bridge gaps in areas including decarbonisation and supply chain resilience.
With exceptional experience in strategy, partnership development and business transformation, Tarun leads RightShip’s strategic change and conceptualisation and works to identify essential partnerships that enable RightShip to execute future-focused growth goals.
